Wildfires


Continued From Page 1A

one near Nahunta and one
near Pearson have
burned more than 90,000
acres of forestland and
swamp, as of Wednesday.
The fires are unrelated, but
are a sign of the extreme
drought in the area.
Local, state and federal
agencies are widening fire-
break lines and creating
new lines to contain the
fires. Firefighting crews
are mopping up and cool-
ing down burning spots in
the charred areas where
the fire has already been.
The majority of the area
that is burning consists of
southern rough and pine
plantations with timber
stands of various ages,
some loblolly and slash
pine, and many gallberry


bushes. Swamps or bays
are spread throughout the
area and due to a low wa-
ter table are readily burn-
ing. Controlled burns are
being used to lessen the fu-
els on the forest floor so
that the wildfire will bum
less intensely when it
reaches that area..
These will be long-term
fires. Due to the inaccessi-
bility of the swamp terrain,
containment will depend
on a significant amount of
rain falling on the area.
The burning of the swamp
will be beneficial in the
long term, because the
swamp wilderness habitat
is a fire-dependent ecosys-
tem.
According to Edgar
Lumpkin, EMS Director,
and Sharon Gay, Commu-
nity Health Nursing Direc-


tor at the Hamilton County
Health Department, there
has been no increase in the
number of people com-
plaining of respiratory dis-
tress caused by the smoke.
Anyone with a respiratory
illness should stay inside.
Contact your doctor if you
have chest pain or tight-
ness, shortness of breath or
severe fatigue.
You should be watchful
during daily outdoor ac-
tivities. Sparks from lawn-
mowers, outdoor grills
and vehicles may ignite a
fire in these extremely dry
conditions.

Health advice regarding wildfire smoke


Smoke is a respiratory
irritant, and can cause a
scratchy throat, and irri-
tated eyes and nose. It can
worsen conditions such as
asthma and other chronic
respiratory or lung condi-
tions.
The Hamilton County
Health Department and
the Florida Department of
Health (DOH) offers the
following advice to citi-
zens that may be affected
by wildfire smoke:
Pay attention to local air'
quality and stay alert to
any news coverage or
health warnings related to
smoke.
If it is smoky outside
avoid prolonged outdoor


activities. It is especially
important to limit time
spent outdoors for chil-
dren and persons with ex-
isting medical conditions.
Stay indoors and "run
your air conditioner, if
you have one. Keep the
fresh air intake closed and
the filter clean to prevent
bringing additional smoke
inside. For best results,
run the air conditioning
with re-circulated air.
If you don't have an air
conditioner, staying inside
with the windows closed
may be dangerous in ex-
tremely hot weather. In
these cases, seek alterna-
tive shelter.
Help keep particle levels


inside lower. When smoke
levels are high, ,'try to
avoid using anything that
burns, such as wood fire-
places, gas logs, gas stoves
- even candles. Don't vac-
uum. That stirs up parti-
cles already inside your
home. And don't smoke
tobacco.
Follow your doctor's ad-
vice about taking your
medicines and following
your asthma management
plan if you have asthma or
other lung disease. Call
your doctor if your symp-
toms worsen.;
For additional informa-
tion contact the Hamilton
County Health Depart-
ment at 792-1414.


Tax


Continued From Page 1A

"Tax exemptions do not
cost the taxpayer anything,
nor do they take away from
the taxpayers," said
Tourism and Economic De-
velopment Executive Direc-
tor Nancy Oliver. "The in-
centives attract businesses
to our area that might oth-
erwise locate in another
county."
The county commission-
ers can offer tax exemp-
tions or abatements to qual-
ifying businesses of any
amount up to 100 percent
for no more than 10 years.


Usually the abatement is a
graduated amount from
100 percent in the first year
to 25 percent or less in the
tenth year.
The land and existing
buildings would continue
to be taxed, while new
buildings and/or equip-
ment would not be taxed.
The exemptions would not
apply to school district tax-
es, municipal taxes or other
special district taxes.
"Even with the incen-
tives, if a business locates
here, the county would re-
ceive additional tax rev-
enues," Oliver said. "If we


don't offer tax abatements,
then the businesses will
probably locate in a county
that does. Then the County
will not get any additional
tax revenues."
"If the referendum is not
passed, the County cannot
offer tax abatements," Oliv-
er added. "New businesses
or expanding businesses
create more jobs and pro-
vide more taxes for the
county."
The ballots will be mailed
on May 9 and need to be re-
turned to the Supervisor of
Elections office by 7 p.m. on
May 29.

senior citizens on an Elder
Hostel tour of the Suwan-
nee River area visited Deas
Brothers Farm. This Elder
Hostel tour focuses mainly
on the Stephen Foster
Memorial State Park in
White Springs.
Deas said he became in-
volved with the group after
another local farmer was
unable to give the tour any-
more. Since then Deas' op-
eration has rated consis-
tently high when the tour
participants rate their over-
all experience.
"Our goal is to bring peo-
ple out here to allow them
to see first hand how mod-


ern agriculture is prac-
ticed," said Deas. "You
have the opportunity to
talk about government, pro-
grams and the overall im-
pact they have on agricul-
ture."
Deas said the groups
from Elder Hostel are made
up primarily of retired pro-
fessionals and coming out
to his operation allows
them to gain a different
perspective on agriculture
than just what they read
and see in mainstream me-
dia.
Those on the tour asked
many questions about
Deas' operation, wanting to
know everything from how
tobacco is harvested to how


it is sold at market.
The Deas farm, which
has grown from 1,322 acres
to about 3,000 acres under
Damon's leadership, has a
cattle operation and pro-
duces crops including to-
bacco, field corn, wheat,
oats, hay, cow peas and
peanuts.
Deas is a two-time recipi-
ent of the SunBelt Expo
Southeastern Farmer of the
Year for Florida. Lunch was
a highlight of this year's
tour and included chicken,
quail and sausage for the'
main co urse, a variety of
southern vegetable special-
ties, biscuits and fried
bread as well as a selection
of homemade desserts.

Norris Notes

By Lillian Norris


Sunday evening, April
29, was an exciting time at
New Hope Baptist Church,
at the Amber Rowe Jones
concert. Amber presented
a beautiful musical of song
and testimony. Her hope is
to do more concerts and
produce a CD. She per-
formed before a packed
congregation, and was
well received by family,
friends and all who were
privileged to attend this
performance. We wish her
the best as she goes forth
in her endeavor.
The annual "cow-pas-
ture picnic" was held Sun-
day afternoon at the Mor-
gan Farm. Congregation
and friends of Jasper Pres-
byterian Church gathered
for an afternoon of fun,
food and fellowship. The
young people (assisted by


adults)
flew their kites when the
wind cooperated. Then
they gathered for baseball
games before enjoying a
feast of hot dogs, ham-
burgers, and all the extras,
including desserts pre-
pared by the ladies, and
the famous Presbyterian
tea. It was a fun time for all
who attended, thanks to
the usual good chefs for
delicious hot dogs and
hamburgers.
A note from Terry Ben-
nett brings the following
information, "The Oak
Ridge Laboratory in Ten-
nessee just informed me

Vote for Progress
Ballots for the renewal of the Economic Development Property Tax Exemption
Referendum will be mailed out to registered voters on May 9. Hamilton
County voters first approved this tax exemption in 1997, its is now due for
renewal.

Please take the time to vote for this important incentive and return your ballot

* The Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) has authority for
approval/disapproval of tax exemption requests.
* New and existing businesses that expand may qualify for tax exemptions.
* The BoCC determines tax exemption amount and annually reviews all
exempted businesses.
* This will help us compete with surrounding North Florida and South Georgia
counties for new businesses.
* Tax incentives have been instrumental in bringing in new jobs to our county
in the past five years and could result in a minimum of 400 new jobs within
the next two years.
* Property tax exemption applies only to county taxes and does not apply to
school district taxes, municipal taxes, independent special district taxes, or
voted taxes..
* When the property tax exemption runs out, the business begins to pay the
full amount of taxes.

Managing Asthma
Many people in our community suffer from asthma. We're in good company if you
consider that each year in the U.S., asthma sends almost 2 million people to the hospital
emergency department. With better management, however, asthma doesn't need to turn
into an emergency so often.
As the most common chronic disease in children, asthma afflicts more than 21 million
Americans overall. A disease of unknown origin, asthma causes inflammation in the
lung's airways, leading to symptoms such as shortness of breath, coughing, chest
tightness, and wheezing.
A laundry list of things can trigger these symptoms-everything from medications,
irritants, infections, and allergens (like pollens, molds, and cockroach droppings) to
exercise, anxiety, and certain foods. By paying attention to what triggers your or your
child's asthma flare-ups you can take steps to reduce these symptoms. If cold weather is
a trigger, limit outdoor activities in the winter or cover your mouth and nose with a scarf.
Or, if laughing or crying changes the way your child breathes, remind him or her to
breathe slowly and deeply for a few minutes.
If your child has asthma, be on the lookout for symptoms so you can treat them before
the airways get too narrow. Coughing, sneezing, or changes in breathing may get your
attention. Also watch for other less obvious early warning signs, such as fatigue,
moodiness, restlessness, headache, or trouble sleeping.
If asthma is well managed, there is no reason it mast become disabling for you or your
child. Even U.S. Olympic athletes with asthma have found ways to participate in the
Games and bring home medals.
Like these athletes, you or your child will need to embrace the value of teamwork-in
this case, with your doctor. A written management plan from your doctor can help you
understand how to measure lung function and avoid or eliminate triggers in your
environment. You'll also learn how to take medication that can prevent inflammation,
control flare-ups, and manage the disease for the long term.
Two main classes of asthma medications are quick-relievers and long-term controllers.
Bronchodilators and corticosteroids, for example, provide temporary relief of symptoms.
They quickly open up airway passages or speed up the resolution of inflammation. Of the
many types of long-term controllers, inhaled corticosteroids appear to be most effective.
Your doctor may recommend a combination of these or other medications.
Discuss the risks and benefits of each type of medication with yourldoctor. For
example, long-term use of oral corticosteroids is linked with osteoporosis, a thinning of
the bones common in seniors. However, inhaled or topical versions of this medication do
not have this adverse effect. Ifyou become pregnant, remember that the risks associated
with asthma medications are less than those of uncontrolled asthma. That's because
decreases in oxygen in your blood can put the growth and survival of your fetus at risk.
In addition to age, researchers have also recently learned that race or factors such as
lung function may affect how well a patient responds to certain asthma medications, This
makes it all the more vital for you to work closely with your doctor. Together, you can
create the best results with a minimum of side effects-and avoid that miserable trip to
the E.R. 357040-F

As of this writing, our area
still has not received those
"April Showers" that bring
"May Flowers." It is hard to
believe the month of May is
upon us. When May arrives,
there are many thoughts that
come to mind. I am remind-
ed during my childhood and
early adulthood when the
annual Florida Folk Festival
was held the first weekend in
May. This year the 55th an-
nual Florida Folk Festival
will be held over Memorial
Day weekend, May 25
through May 27.
I am also reminded of the
many years I enjoyed watch-

Williams's kindergarten
class at South Hamilton

One of the traditional "old

wet in the first "May rain"
you will have good luck for
the rest of the year. If the
Lord sees fit to bless us with
a rain at some time during
the month of May, I plan on
getting out in it and getting

Id IaM,/ L


daughter unmasks


her


s wartime secrets


As a young woman, journalist Lucinda Franks learned that herfather was a
U.S. spy in World War II, triggering a quarter-century quest to tell his story.
Her findings make haunting reading in a memoir about what she discovered.


By William B. Ketter
CNHI News Service

H. Roger Tatarian, the last great
editor of United Press International
and the person who guided me
through my formative years as a
journalist, was known for his schol-
arly encouragement when asked for
help on a dicey story.
"Go where the facts take you,"
he'd counsel. "Then get at
the truth no matter where
you end up."
Tatarian passed away 12
years ago, but his'sage ad-
vice remains firmly plant-
ed in the journalistic con-
science of those men and
women who had the privi-
lege of working with him.
Perhaps no one better
personifies that legacy
than Lucinda Franks, who
won a Pulitzer Prize for Lucind
national reporting in 1971
-under the tutelage of
Tatarian.
She was honored along with
fellow UPI reporter Tom Powers -
for tracking down the truth of a
rich girl from a small town in Illi-
nois who drifted from her roots to,
become a tattered terrorist, dying at
the age of 28 when a makeshift
bomb factory exploded in a town-
house in New York's Greenwich
Village.
Now. Franks has chased a much
tougher-to-get-at tale, the clandes-
tine military life of her father in:


World War II. She bares the un-
comfortable facts, including her
family's darkest dysfunctions, in a
lyrically written memoir titled,
"My Father's Secret War."
Getting at the truth was hard
work, with plenty of days of de-
spair, and Franks admits she's still
not sure she knows the complete
story.
But through persistence and


CNHI New


guile she determined that her father
'wasn't the shining hero she'd
imagined him to be and that his
frequent assignments as a spy in-
volved the cold-blooded assassina-
tion of at least two suspected ene-
my agents, including a double-
dealer for the Soviet Union.
Thomas Franks, a Navy officer
and deadeye marksman, didn't

to know what happened on his
covert missions during the war. He


insisted he had taken an oath to
never tell and he held to it through
bouts of alcoholism and mental an-
guish.
He couldn't, however, hold off
the determination of his journalist
daughter to solve a mystery that
;jolted her curiosity when, as a
young woman, she found a German
secret police cap and Nazi Iron
Cross among-her deceased moth-
er's belongings.
She instinctively won-
dered if her mother had
an affair with a Nazi. But
,that thought was quickly
dismissed when her father
assured her they were his
*, artifacts from the war and
'that he didn't want to talk
about it.
,J "I'd rather you did,"
she. responded.
From that point on, Lu-
cinda Franks sets out on a

counsels her on who to contact for

fort in iiiding buried doctunents
and inter\ iewving her father's mili-

-A first motion that he may come
around occurs when the father
agrees to contribute\ videotaped tes-

during a brief visit to a liberated
Nazi death camp in Ohrdurf, Ger-
many. He told of the horror of find-

stacked in buildings and others
bunched up or.the camp's streets.
His reaction: "Oh my God! Oh
God! How could something like
this happen?'" He also said he was
ordered not to talk about what he
saw.
So it isn't until later, when her
father's health begins to slip badly,

,I. H. : SH'-TL L HE LL DIRECT THY PATHS PVERBS 3:5-6

\ Suwannee Valley


Trust in the Lord


By Pam Campbell

rust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean
not unto thine own understanding. In all thy
ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct
thy paths." Proverbs 3:5-6 Have any of you
ever really paid dose attention to this verse
of scripture in the Bible? God tells us to trust him with all of our
heart. In the Merriam Webster's Dictionary we will find this
definition for the word trust. "TRUST: assured reliance on the
character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something;
Someone in whom confidence is placed."
So God is asking us to rely on his character, his ability, his
strength and his truth. Rely on God's character, a God who
cannot lie, who is always faithful, who gave his son Jesus to die
for our sins, our creator, redeemer, our father, our savior, our
friend, our Lord. Yes, that is the kind of character to rely on,
someone who is steadfast and true. In the Bible we read in He-
brews 6:17-19 the following promise 6:17. In the same way
God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise
the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath,
6:18 so that by two unchangeable, things in which it is impos-
sible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have
strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us.
6:19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both
sure and steadfast." You see when you put your trust in God,
you are putting it in one who cannot lie, one who is your an-
chor, your hope, one who is steadfast, we take refuge in this
and will find strong encouragement. We know that if we rely
on him we are relying on truth as Jesus tells us this in John 14:6.
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life." He
is the truth. Remember in the definition of the word trust, it
means to rely on the character, ability, strength, or truth of
someone or something; someone in whom confidence can be
placed. We see in Ephesians 1:19 that God has the strength we
need to rely on. "and his incomparably Freat power for us who
believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,
Jeremiah 17:7. "But blessed is the man who trusts in the
LORD, whose confidence is in him." We have read scriptures
here and see how they fit perfectly with the dictionary defini-
tion of the word trust. God asks us to put our confidence in
him.
How many of you have ever wondered why bad things
seem to happen to innocent people? Have you ever felt like
things in your life were not going the right way? When
tragedy strikes someone that you know, or makes the world
news, do you find it hard to trust? We must learn to trust in

God regardless of the circumstances. Sometimes we may pray
for something to happen the way we want, and maybe we be-
lieve it is what God wants, but still the answer may not be the
one we are looking for. There are times when God answers
our prayers and the answer may be no.' Those times it is espe-
cially important that we really learn to trust in God.
I want to share a few things with you that have happened in
the last weeks, some most everyone knows about and some
are probably ones you have not heard about. One that most
people have had on their minds is the horrible tragedy at Vir-
ginia Tech. We wonder why, we find it hard to understand,
we pray for the families, our hearts ache and we also pray that
it won't happen again. Regardless of the circumstance we
must still trust in God.
Someone that is very dose to me, like a part of our family,
lost their sister last week. I did not even know her sister as she
lives in another state, but because we are so close, I felt her
grief and sorrow. Losing a loved one is always a time when we
need to put our confidence in God. The very
same day that her sister died m\ hus- "
band's uncle died \ern une\pectedl. .
Everyday, everywhere there are people /
dying, but I gue-ss when it happens f
to people that are clo-e to \-oh. it / J
seems so much harder to
trust, yet that is when we -
need to trust to the ...
most. You see when -'
we go back to the
scripture we started .
with today we are
reminded to Z
"Trust in the
Lord with all .
thine heart and -
lean not unto ; -
thine own un- : '.. i
derstanding."
* Proverbs '3:5 '-
No matter
what you _
may be go-
ing through,
no matter
what trial may have come your way, or you may find yourself
in the future, we must trust in the Lord and not try to under-
stand, for God has it all under control.
In an orphanage in Roatan, Honduras a little 5-year-old girl
named Virginia broke her arm a while back. This is a precious
child that had lived a horrible existence until the last year
when she found a home at the Child Sponsorship Internation-
al orphanage where the children are c te big family with the
dire&or and his wife loving them as parents. Little Virginia's
arm did not heal right so the doctor in a Honduran hospital
was going to break it again and reset it to heal properly. They
never had the chance, the person giving the anesthia made a
horrible error, and little Virginia went into a coma. She lived
for a few days, she their stopped breathing and her little heart
gave out, she went to be with Jesus. I want to share just a few
lines from a e-mail I received about Virginia that will help you
really understand more about trusting in God. "Wednesday
morning, was a very sad day for us all but a very joyful day for
Virginia. Forgive me for not giving you all the details at the

moment, but the healing process is at work in all of us. She was
our daughter and a great sister to all of the children here in our
home. We thank you for all of your support and prayers. I
want you all to know that the Lord did answer them. As we
all prayed for our little "Tweedy Bird" Virginia to stay with us,
His answer was simply this: "I have something better for her".
Today she is in the arms of Jesus, telling Him everything that
happened as she loves to tell stories. I am sure the Lord is say-
ing, "Virginia, my little one...I know...I was there the whole
time." Now that is real trust. There is much more to this story
and someday maybe I will share it with you, but right now I
want you to realize what God is speaking to you through this.
Obviously they all wanted little Virginia to live, they all
prayed, they stayed with her continuously praying, people
around the world joined in prayer for Virginia. Some of you
may have prayed for this precious child to live, I know our
family did. Knowing she will not be there when my family
and I go there in July grieves our hearts, we cry with them, and
we also trust with them. Virginia lived in a loving home for a
year of her short life and in that home she found the love of Je-
sus, today we can rejoice in knowing that she is there with Je-
sus, talking with him. Why should this have happened, I don't
know that answer, that is where trust comes in. You see God
has a promise in Psalms 46:1-2 "God is our refuge and
strength, a' very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we
fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains
be carried into the midst of the sea." You see no matter what
happens, what trouble comes God is still our refuge and our
strength, he is our help. The rest of the children and the direc-
tors of the orphanage grieve for Virginia, they certainly don't
understand why she had to die, but they know she is in heav-
en, and they trust in God and are going on for him.
As it says in Psalm 30:4 "Blessed is that man that maketh the
Lord his trust." They have learned to trust. Remember once
again, the definition of the word TRUST: assured reliance on
the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or some-
thing; Someone in whom confidence is placed. Have you
learned to put your confidence in the Lord, to trusthim, to rely
on God's character, hii strength,; his ability, to legveit..all to
'God and not beafraid ? When something bad happens; when
someone we love dies, or a tragedy is in the news, when what
we pray for doesn't happen the way we want it to, do we think
God is not there, or that he isn't listening, or doesn't care? God
is always there, he always cares about you, he always hears
you and he always answers your prayers. Learn to trust in
God, to rely on him, he is your strength, he is your salvation
and he will always keep his promises. When you feel sorrow
that you don't feel you can bear take it to Jesus. "Casting all
your care upon him: for he careth for you." 1 Peter 5:7.
The verse Isaiah 12:2 says "Surely God is my salvation; I will
trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD, is my strength
and power is like the working of his mighty strength, Re-
member we are talking about trust, trusting in God, our God
that is faithful, that cannot lie. He is our God who will never
leave us. He is God, we can have confidence in God and total-
ly rely on him. 1 John 4:16 And so we know and rely on the
love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in
God, and God in him." Next time something goes wrong,
someone you love dies or becomes ill, or you don't feel well,
or something happens on the news that grieves you, or causes
you to fear, remember to Trust in the Lord. "Trust in the Lord
with all, thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understand-

SHALL DIRECT THY PATHS PROVERBS 3:5-6


Suwannee Valley


Aunt Pam's KIDS CORNER


Trust in the Lord


By Pam Campbell
Trust in the Lord with all
thine heart; and lean not
unto thine own under-
standing. In all thy ways ac-
knowledge him, and he
shall direct thy paths."
Proverbs 3:5-6., Have you
ever thought about what
that Bible verse means?
God tells us to trust him
with all of our heart and not
try to figure it all out, to let
him direct our paths. In
the Merriam Webster's Dic- t
tionary we will find this de-
finition for the word trust. :
"TRUST: assured reliance
on the character, ability,
strength, or truth of some- i
one or something; Someone .
in whom confidence is
placed." How many of you
can think of times that you
have had to trust some-
body? Trust is very impor- I
tant, especially when it
comes to trusting in God.
God asks us in this verse to
trust in him, to rely on him,
and his strength and truth.
It should be very easy to
rely on God. God cannot .e .
lie, and he is always faith-
ful. God.gave his son Jesus
so that we can be saved, he ..
is our father, our friend, :.. .. '..'...
and our Lord. Yes, that is
the one that we can put our .
trust in. We know that if we
rely on the Lord we are re-.
lying on truth as Jesus tells
us this in John 14:6. Jesus
answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life." He is the truth. "But blessed is the
man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. The Bible verses that we just
read go right along with the dictionary definition of the word trust. God asks us to put
our confidence and trust in him.
Have any of you kids ever wondered why bad things happen? Maybe you wonder
why someone that you know had to die, or why they are sick, or why you are sick. You
may have seen on the news where lot's of people died at a college because of one bad
man. We need to learn to trust in God no matter what is going on or what happens.
Sometimes you may pray for something to happen a certain way and it doesn't, that is
a time to learn to trust God. God always answers our prayers, sometimes the answer is
just different than what we expect. Whatever happens in your life, now and as you get
older you need to learn to trust in the Lord.
I want to share with you about a little 5-year-old girl named Virginia. Virginia was a
little girl that lived in an orphanage in Roatan, Honduras. That is a country down in

so the doctor in a hospital was going to break it again and reset it to heal properly. They
never had the chance, someone made a really awful mistake and Virginia died, she went

you all to know that the Lord did answer our prayers. As
we all prayed for our little "Tweedy Bird" Virginia to stay
with us, His answer was simply this: "I have something

better for her." Today she is in the arms of Jesus, telling
Him everything that happened as she loves to tell stories.
I am sure the Lord is saying, "Virginia, my little one...I
know...I was there the whole time." Now that is real
trust. God did not answer their prayers the way they were
hoping he would, but they know that he did answer. You
see Jesus is right where you are all the time. Everyone
wanted little Virginia to live, they all prayed, there were
people all around the world praying for Virginia. I know
our family did. But we know that she is with Jesus, talk-
ing with him. Why did this sweet little girl die, I don't
know that answer, that is where trust comes in. You see
God has a promise in Psalms 46:1-2: "God is our refuge
and strength, a very present help in trouble. No matter
what happens, what trouble comes God is still our help.
The rest of the children at the orphanage miss Virginia,
they cry for her, yet they know that she is in heaven and
they are trusting in the Lord. Have you learned to trust
the Lord, to leave it all to God and not be afraid? When
something bad happens, or when what we pray for does-
n't happen the way we want it to, do we think God is not
there, or that he isn't listening, or doesn't care? God is al-
ways there, he always cares about you, he always hears
you and he always answers your prayers. Learn to trust
in God, he will always keep his promises. Remember we
are talking about trust, trusting in God, our God that is
faithful. He is our God who will never leave us. "Trust in
the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own
understanding.

Dear Classified Guys,
Maybe you can help me figure this
out. My friend was insecure about
buying a used car, so he asked for
my help. He made it very clear that
with the price of gas these days, he
wanted an economy sedan that got
good mileage and was priced under
$8,000. I spent two weekends calling
classified ads and visiting dealer
lots. Thenwhen I found a good deal,
I gave my friend a call. Wasn't I sur-
prised to find that he had bought a
car on his own the week before?
And it was nothing like what he
asked me to find! Instead, he'bought
a luxury car with leather seats, power
everything and a big eight-cylinder
engine. Then, to make matters '
worse, he spent twice as much as his
$8,000 limit! Now I'm really angry.
I spent a lot of time trying to
help him. He offered to -"_ "
take me for a ride, but in all 1;
honesty, I wanted to speak '
my mind. Any suggestions on
how to handle this?

Cash: First, you may want to take a
few deep breaths to calm down, or
maybe a nice long drive would help!
Carry: It seems you and your friend
had a few communication problems.

Duane "Cash" Holze

007 G,29/07
@2007 The Classified Guys


He either didn't realize that you were
spending so much time on the project or
he somehow got caught up in the emo-
tional process of buying a car.
Cash: While he may have started out
thinking logically about his needs in
relation to a vehicle, somewhere along
the line he leaned more towards style
and comfort rather than functionality.
Carry: It's easy to do. After all, there
are a lot of choices out there from small
gas-saving cars and hybrids to SUV's
and high-end luxury.cars.
Cash: Let's face it. Any basic car,
providing it runs, will get you from
point "A" to point "B". The difference


between them is the amount of money
you spend and the style in which they
get you there.
Carry: Since your friend may be on a
budget, the overpriced car with a higher
insurance premium and larger gas bill
may prove to be too costly. After he
fills the tank a few times, don't be sur-
prised if he asks for your help again.
Cash: You may have a right to be
upset, but before you get too far along,
talk to your friend and see if you can
straighten out'the misunderstanding.
Carry: And if you really want to
shake him up a bit, just ask to borrow
his new luxury car.;


Downhill Ratings
Many people look for a high fuel effi-
ciency rating when buying a car.
However this year, comparing new
2008 models to older cars has become
very difficult. The Environmental
Protection Agency revised the fuel effi-
ciency rating system that car manufac-
turers use. The new rating system, not
updated since. 1985, takes into account
real world speeds, seasonal changes
(like driving in the summer or winter)
and even driving with the air condition-
er. Although more accurate, the new
rating system makes new cars look less
efficient than previous years .
Luxury at a Cost
Most of us would like to ride in luxu-
ry, but it does come at a cost. Entry-
level luxury cars have an MSRP of
$29K to $36K. Mid-range luxury vehi-
cles can run up to $60K and high-end -
luxury cars up to $1 00K. The ultra lux-
ury cars, such as Ferraris and Maseratis,
top over $ 100K. While many of us.
would like to own one of these vehi-
cles, some of us consider it a luxury just
to have a car that doesn't break down.

Deluxe Package
The other day I walked out of their
mall after finishing my shopping and.
stood looking at the sea of cars in the
parking lot. As I realized I had for-
gotten where I parked, a fellow shop-
per came out \% ith the similar ,
problem.
As we both stood dumbfounded at
the endless lot, I suddenly heard the
beeping of her horn. "There it. is,"
she exclaimed. *
: Wondering if she had a car remote
in her hand, I commented. 'Now
that's luxury. How much % as it to
add -hat optionto your car?"
\ erN thing has a colt." she
grinned. "Thai's m. husband blow-
ing the horn!"

Downing eight a d

We all know that along with the recommended
five senrings a day of fruits and vegetables, we
should drink eight eight-ounce glasses of water
daily. But how many of usL really do that?
Not many. apparently, as 73 percent of those
surveyed by Gallup in 2003 admitted knowing
they should drink eight cups a day. but don't.
citing poor quahty and taste as key reasons. More
recently, faucet manufacturer Moen Incorporated
reported that many people avoid this elixir of
general good health because they do not feel
comfortable drinking water directly from their
kitchen faucet for lack of filtering capabilities.
These stats explain the burgeoning bottled -
w.ater industry sales of 7.5 billion gallons sold in
the U.S. in 2005, more than triple the 2.2 billion
gallons sold in 1991. But it seems the joke's on ..'-
consumers, because recent news reports indicate *...
that 40 percent of bottled w after sold is actually
just filtered tap water.
There are many home %water filtration options,
and they keep getting better. Many refrigerators j
now include filtered cold w aler dispensers.
although they can be too slow to effectively fill a
pitcher, coffee pot or even a tall water bottle. Or
constuners can make room in the fridge for
filtering pitchers that seem to constantly need
refilling. Bulky faucet attachments pro% ide
filtered vw after nght at the sink. but they look Like
an unsightly growth on today's decorator faucets.
Now there's a nevw option available that invisibly
integrates a filtration system into a stylish faucet.
Moen recently enhanced one of its popular
kitchen faucet styles by adding a built-in filtering
sN stem that is mounted out of sight under the sink.
The new Muirfield faucet with ChoiceFlo
technology, available exclusively at Lowe's in a
chrome finish, features two waterways hidden in the spout to
dispense both filtered and non-filtered water. With a generous flow
rate of one gallon per minute, this new faucet exceeds many other
filtered after r options. The carbon-block filter is long-lasting and easy
to replace with no tools or water sbut-off neededL The faucet reduces
impurities such as lead, cysts. mercury, linden and other harmful
chemicals more thoroughly than other options, while retaining
beneficial fluoride in the water. The stylish new faucet even reminds
users with a blinking light when it's time to change the filter, and ,
inexpensive replacement filters are available at Lowe's or through the
company's Web site.
"Gone are the days of bulky faucet-mounted filtering systems or
the hassles associated \ith water filtering pitchers," said Kelly
Atkins, Moon's director of retail marketing. "Our new filtering faucet
is attractive, easy to install and affordably pnced."
The time is right to save your money and the environment by
replacing the billion plastic water bottles that end up min landfills each
'. f .". ,
year with berter-tasting tap water. '\- ... .V1,.:-it-, t' .ai-i .',

What to Grill


Extend your grilling repertoire with these
easy techniques. Pre-heat your grill to medium-
high and oil it well, then...
-To grill corn with husks, pull back the husk
and tie the ends together to make a natural
handle. Remove the corn silk. Brush kernels
with seasoned melted butter or oil. Grill 7 to 10
minutes, turning occasionally (use that handle!)
to get delicious bronzing on the.kernels. Or,
grill the corn in the husk. After removing the
silk, replace husks and tie with a strip of husk or
string. Soak ears in cold water for 10 minutes.
Grill, turning often, until husks are charred and
corn is hot, 10 to 15 minutes.
-To grill unhusked corn, just brush with
seasoned melted butter and grill 7 to 10
minutes, turning occasionally for best results.

It's easy to prepare great-tasting catfish on
your grill...
-Marinate or season catfish fillets first, if
you like. Marinades and seasonings using citrus
flavors or fresh garden herbs work well as do
southwestern inspired chili flavors.
-To grill or broil thicker fillets, brush the
fish with vegetable oil on both sides and-season
to taste. Grill 4 to 5 minutes per side, tum?ing
only once, until fish is opaque.
-To grill or broil thinner fillets, simply grill
on one side without turning, until fillets are
opaque.
-"Branch" out by cutting catfish fillets into
chunks and threading them onto pre-soaked
wooden skewers. Grill until opaque, turning
several times.

DOH reminds of
the risks associated
with consuming
raw oysters
Submitted
Officials with the Depart-
ment of Health (DOH) are
urging Floridians with certain
health conditions to avoid
consuming raw oysters, which
often harbor the naturally oc-
curring bacteria Vibrio vulnifi-
- cus that may cause serious ill-
ness.
Those most at-risk for de-
veloping serious illness from
Vibrio vulnificus include
heavy drinkers with liver dam-
age, and people with certain
health conditions such as liver
disease, hemochromatosis, di-
abetes, cancer, stomach disor-
ders or any illness or treat-
ment that weakens the im-
mune system. While otherwise
healthy persons eating raw
oysters with this bacterium are
less susceptible to becoming
ill, at-risk individuals are more
likely to become extremely ill.
or potentially die. People in
these high-risk groups are also
at risk of illness if they have
wounds, cuts or scratches and
wade in estuarine areas or sea-
water where the bacteria
might be present.
Thoroughly cooking oys-
ters, either by frying, stewing
or roasting, eliminates harmful
bacteria and viruses in4he
meat. Consuming raw oysters
that have undergone a post-
harvest treatment process to
eliminate the bacteria can also
reduce the risk of illness.
Initial symptoms of Vibrio
vulnificus infection can in-
clude mild nausea, vomiting
or diarrhea, followed by dis-
tinctive swollen skin lesions,
and septicemia (blood poison-
ing). If someone experiences
these symptoms. after consum-
ing raw oysters, they should
contact their personal physi-
cian immediately for diagnosis
and to receive antibiotic treat-
ment.
For more information,
please visit DOH's Web site at
www.doh.state.fl.us and
choose "Food and Waterbome.
Disease" from the subject list.

Gains for Buyers in this new Real Estate Market


After several years of a booming real
estate market one that was decidedly
to the seller's advantage the industry
has taken a swing in the opposite direction
in recent months. Higher interest rates and
a greater inventory of houses is pushing
the market in the buyer's favor. This.
means that enterprising individuals ready
to make a purchase may come away with
more than just a good bargain.
In an effort to move houses, many
builders, mortgage lenders and private
sellers are hatching plans to make their
properties all the more enticing. Some are


offering to pay mortgage points, throw in
extras, such as a new pool, or give away
gift certificates for shopping sprees at big
name stores. What's more, although there
is resistance, the word is out that lowering
prices is also necessary for making the
sale these days.
Therefore, according to experts, this
could be the ideal time for those looking
to fulfill the dream of home ownership to
do just that. Here are some of the rewards
they can reap and the incentives to be on
the look out for.
Creative mortgages: To entice people


to take out mortgages in spite of
rising interest rates, some
lenders and builders are
offering special programs.
Many home builders are using
"buy-down" programs, in which
they buy down a mortgage by
two percentage points in year
one and one point in year two.
This can lead to substantial
savings. But watch out for deals
that offer flashy savings early
on but sucker-punch you later
during the loan term. Pre-

Lo --..'a! Rea!, Esta Pr


After years in the seller's favor,
the real estate market is now
more advantageous for the
buyer.

payment penalties or early
termination fees may be in
store for those who don't do
their homework before
signing on the dotted line.
Wheeling and dealing:
To gain business, builders
(and private sellers) are
throwing in specials with
the sale of a house. This
could mean that they'll give
away the keys to a new car
or send buyers on a
whirlwind vacation. Keep in
mind that the cost of these
bonuses could
comparatively still be lesser
than if the seller simply

lowered the price of the
home by 10 to 15 percent,
So don't be too blindsighted
by flashy deals. Run the
numbers and figure out the
best gain. Desperate sellers
may even go for a price
slash in addition to the gifts
if they are asked.
Speak up: When the
building inspector is doing
his or her run-through on
the property, take detailed
notes of what is found. The
scales are tipped in the
buyer's favor to have high-
priced improvements made
by the seller, for example a
new deck or a driveway re-
paving. Anxious for
business, sellers may also
be more likely to take off
some money from the
bottom line or allow buyers
to keep that Viking stove so
they don't pass on the
house.
Deep cuts: Sellers are
some of the last people to
realize that they have to
reduce the price on their
homes if they want to get a
sale. It's hard for them to
accept that their house is not
worth what it may have
been last year. There were 4
million homes on the
market in the United States
in August 2006, a million
more than at the same point
in 2005. Brokers are
realizing creative plans,
including pricing homes
"right," can be the deciding
factor to making a quick
sale or having a home join
the surplus inventory.
Therefore, don't be afraid to
make a low-ball offer when
bidding on a home. The
offer just might be accepted,
even in the markets where
experts predicted prices
would remain relatively
stable. But remember, price
cuts will often be the last
tactic sellers employ to sell
their home.
Beware of broker
incentives: Builders and
private sellers are relying on
the expertise of real estate
brokers even more during
this real estate market. They
may offer special
incentives, such as bigger
commissions or bonuses for
those who get the job done.
Therefore, a broker may be
pulling out all the stops to
get buyers to purchase a
particular property. Agents
are only required to disclose
incentive information if
they are asked. If an
overzealous broker makes
you suspicious (a fixer-
upper shouldn't be marketed
as "move-in ready" or a
"showplace"), look for
another agent.
